"The deadline for disposal of applications ended in April this year. Therefore, an amendment needs to be brought to the law to enable formation of Bagar Hukum Committee chaired by MLAs. About two years would be needed to dispose off all pending applications. When he was the revenue minister, Kagodu Thimmappa had tried to settle all theapplications. But as the MLAs are dithering in disposing off ineligible applications, lacs of applications are pending," the minister explained.
